Amped Up Vegan Protein Ice-Cream Sandwiches

Protein Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich (3)-2

Watch out cookies, there’s a new ice cream sandwich in town! We think these sammies can even count as breakfast, since they include protein-rich waffles made plant-based protein, and the “ice cream” is made just with bananas.

If we’re in a more decadent mood, we’ll add So Delicious dairy-free ice cream to the sandwich instead of banana “ice cream” and make it official treat.

Servings: 5



  • 1 ½  tsp ground flax
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup Vega Sport Performance Protein Chocolate or  Vega One Chocolate

  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • Pinch sea salt
